There are two ways to go at this Chicago-area mini-chain, which has been around since the 1940s: the Italian food route (sandwiches, pizza, spaghetti or mostaccioli) or the burger-dog-french fry route. If you want the true Ricobene's experience, try one of the massive breaded steak sandwiches smothered in cheese, peppers and marinara. The breaded eggplant parmesan sandwich is delicious too. This location draws students from nearby Curie High School, who come to hang, eat fries, drink pop and play video games. Each booth has its own little jukebox, stocked with oldies.
